Cork Airport cuts energy consumption by 35% in 5 years

Thursday, May 22nd, 2014

Cork Airport has reported it has achieved annual savings of over half a million Euro following a cut of 35% in energy costs over the last 5 years.

The achievement has been recognised by the Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland (SEAI) who ranked the airport within the top 2% of 190 public bodies and Ireland’s fourth best performer overall in terms of energy reduction.

The cut of over a third in its carbon footprint has come from the introduction by Cork Airport of a continuous approach to energy management, focusing on optimising the existing operational control of the airport and ensuring all equipment and processes are as energy efficient as possible.

With 6 years remaining to the 2020 deadline of the National Energy Efficiency Action Plan, Cork Airport has already passed the 33% target set out for public bodies and says it is continuing to drive energy efficiency measures for continuous improvement and further cuts to its energy consumption.
